Then: For nine seasons, Miriam Mc Donald played the role of Emma Nelson, whose friendship with Manny Santos and relationship with Sean Cameron were main focal points of ‘Degrassi’ throughout the early seasons.
As the determined activist Emma, Mc Donald’s character dealt with a wealth of issues, including anorexia, bulimia and even an STD.

Degrassi: The Next Generation is a Canadian serial teen drama television series.
The series introduces a group of seventh and eighth grade school children, and follows their lives as they deal with some of the challenges and issues teenagers face such as online predators, body image, dysfunctional families, sex, puberty, rumors, peer pressure, stress, and drug use.
Ultimately, Emma ends up drunkenly marrying Spinner and decides to stay with him when realizing that they really do love each other.
Gotta love ‘Degrassi.’ Now: During her time on ‘Degrassi,’ Mc Donald also starred in the Lifetime movie ‘She’s Too Young,’ playing a promiscuous teen who contracts syphillis.
